Real Estate Tips: Your November Checklist…

  • Remove leaves and debris from eaves and gutters. Also a great time to test downspouts to ensure proper drainage from the roof.
  • Turn on the pilot light for gas furnaces or gas fireplaces.
  • Replace bulbs in porch and garage lights and test any exterior electrical connections so you’ll be readyfor holiday decorating.
  • Check existing holiday decorations and replace any with damaged or frayed wires.
  • Test fire alarms, smoke dectors and carbon monoxide dectors. Also replace all batteries.
  • Wrap any exposed pipes to prevent freezing and bursting during the winter months. Put away any hoses connected to outside faucets.
  • Check, clean and/or replace furnace air filters each month during heating season. Also, check vents to make sure they are not blocked by furniture or other objects.
  • When the leaves have fallen, clean out wells around foundation vents to keep them working properly and to keep surface water from entering your crawl space.
